Get an Inkling MBA Prediction Competition

Today Inkling is launching the first annual MBA prediction market competition at 16 business schools across the country. The competition will be conducted over a 3 month period and will give students the opportunity to see who can make the most (virtual) money by forecasting future business events and executing astute trading strategies.

Inkling is already being used in a lot of business school classrooms and we thought it would be fun to run a competition specifically among this group. Small prizes will be rewarded throughout the competition for good comments in the discussion threads, creating interesting markets, etc. but the big prize will go to the top trader who will get an all expenses paid party for him/herself and 20 of their friends. It should be a nice way to cap a tough school year.

Here are the schools participating. If you're a student and you would like your school included, contact us. There may still be time to get you in.
